Filing for Bankruptcy in Long Island

In a world run by plastic money and lending companies, it is increasingly easy to not only fall into debt, but to continue to slide down the slippery slope. With a culture of wanting more, needing more, and eventually buying more, it's easy to lose track of where you stand financially. It's easy to fall in over your head before you know it, leaving you struggling to tread water and keep up with your growing debts. When your life becomes overrun by this issue, filing for bankruptcy can be one of the only options left to help you get your life on track and moving forward to a brighter future.

If you are drowning in credit card debt, hopelessly behind on mortgage payments, at risk of foreclosure, have been laid off, are injured or ill, have amassed large amounts of medical bills or are otherwise struggling to make ends meet with limited means, then bankruptcy might be a viable option for you. Whether you choose to file under Chapter 7 or Chapter 13, you can begin making the steps forward towards a new chapter in your life.

The Role of a Bankruptcy Lawyer

Debt itself is a terrifying situation to try and handle. When dealing with creditor harassment, freezes on your bank accounts, foreclosure, repossession, or wage garnishes, it's not necessary to try and attempt to handle it all on your own. When you secure the help of a bankruptcy attorney at Jacoby and Jacoby, you can be confident that every detail of your case will be handled with finesse and skilled knowledge.

Your lawyer will be able to help dispel all bankruptcy myths, help you decide whether you should file under Chapter 7 versus Chapter 13, discuss any possible alternatives, and will work towards either eliminating or consolidating your bills. By getting the involvement of someone personally involved with the law, you are putting your best foot forward towards getting a successful outcome. Once you've begun to move towards escaping the overwhelming stress of having debt hanging over your head, you will be able to breathe easier once more. With a personal touch ushering you through the process, as well as a thorough approach towards having your rights completely protected, you will find that the benefit of an experienced bankruptcy lawyer is without measure. When it comes to your future, there's no room for giving anything less than your best.
